In 2006, Dr. Nichols was named Country Doctor of the Year.  This award, sponsored by Staff Care®, recognizes outstanding, continuing contribution to rural healthcare and is presented to a physician who best exemplifies the spirit, skill, and dedication of America’s rural medical practitioners.

At the August 29, 2010 grand opening and dedication of the David B., Nichols Health Center on Tangier Island, Dr. Nichols was further honored, and surprised to receive, an additional award, delivered in person by a representative of Staff Care:  Country Doctor of the Decade.  This is the first time Staff Care® has awarded an award for the decade.
